Is Keppra an effective medication for focal seizures after the removal of meningioma?
It's used as adjuvant therapy mainly, the usual dose is 2000 mg/day.
The mostly used dose of Keppra is 2000 mg/day given twice a day i.e. 1000 mg/dose.
Keppra is used as adjuvant therapy (add-on) to control mainly partial seizures regardless of the causing condition (including the removal of supratentorial meningioma). Its use results in seizure reduction in about 25-30% of cases, being seizure free values are about 5%.
Hope this helps.
